Formal approval of the activity report and the financial report for 2013

Thorsten Behrens opens the meeting and outlines the agenda. The first action item is the approval of the annual report, which consists of the activity report and the financial report. He asks Florian Effenberger to elaborate on the activity report.

Florian explains that the activity report needs to outline how we fulfilled our objectives in 2013, and that it must give an overview of our activities. The activity report will be sent to the foundation authorities and to the tax office, and will be made public on our website. The official version we have to file is in German, and a complete translated English version will be published as well.

Thorsten then outlines details of the financial report. It must likewise accurately report all accounting-relevant numbers, income and expenses, and will be sent to the foundation authorities and the tax office. Like the activity report, it will also be made public on our website, and an English version will be published as well. The financial report has been prepared and verified by our tax advisor.

Thorsten asks to have the following vote and further discussions private, as there is a need for confidentiality. The result of this vote is now being made public in accordance with our statutes.

Thorsten explains further that he would like ask the board to authorize Björn Michaelsen and him to sign the letter of completeness ("Vollständigkeitserklärung") towards the tax advisor, and authorize them to sign the documents for the foundation authorities and the tax office, both on behalf of the board.

Request: Approval of the activity report and the financial report for 2013. Authorization of Thorsten Behrens and Björn Michaelsen to sign the letter of completeness ("Vollständigkeitserklärung") towards the tax advisor, and to sign the documents for the foundation authorities and the tax office, both on behalf of the board.
